VIII, 1931, p. 399 (ill.) Gonzales Coques was a student of Pieter Brueghel III and David Ryckaert II. In 1640/41 he was appointed master of the Antwerp Guild of Saint Luke. Within a short period of time he became the favourite portraitist of Antwerp patricians. He also had prominent patrons abroad, such as King Charles I of England (Coques is documented to have been in England several times) and Elector William I of Brandenburg. In England, Coque came under the spell of Van Dyck, who inspired him with his elegant portaits, an influence that is also betrayed in the present painting. His proximity to Van Dyck also earned him the nickname ‘Little Van Dyck’’’’. In 1671 he was appointed court painter to Don Juan de Zuniga, then the governor of the Spanish Netherlands. Yet he also entertained contacts to the Northern Netherlands. He received a golden chain from Prince Frederick Henry of Orange as a reward for a number of portraits and a pastoral landscape the prince had acquired. The present painting might be one of those commissioned by the House of Orange. In 2001, Jan de Maere expressed the opinion that the landscape background in the present painting was by the hand of Jan Wildens and that the horses and the dog were painted by Paul de Vos.

Gonzales Coques (Antwerp 1614/18-1684) A portrait of a gentleman, bust-length oil on copper, oval 4¼ x 3 3/8 in. (10.8 x 8.6 cm.) Private collection, Great Britain. Known as the 'petit Van Dyck' thanks to his elegant small-scale compositions such as this oval portrait on copper, Coques was a favored portraitist among the patrician class in the Southern Netherlands, as well as in England, the Netherlands and Germany. His portraits reveal an affinity not only to the work of Anthony van Dyck, but also to the Dutch masters of small-scale portraiture such as Thomas de Keyser and Gerard ter Borch.

CATALOGUE NOTE
This little portrait most likely dates to circa 1650, the same year Coques painted his Portrait of Lucas FaydÂ’herbe, the 17th century Flemish architect and sculptor (now at the Musées des Beaux Arts, Brussels) and Portrait of a Young Officer (Private Collection, England). In all three portraits, which are on copper and are approximately fifteen by twelve centimeters, the mustachioed male subject stands confidently: turned toward the viewer, chest and chin out, eyelids slightly lowered, one hand on his hip, the other resting in front of him. In fact, the compositional similarities between the present portrait and the Portrait of FaydÂ’herbe are so striking that the present portrait was itself identified in its earliest provenance (see below) as a portrait of that architect. By 1650, Coques had effectively adapted the van Dyckian portrait style, but scaled it down to create smaller, more intimate cabinet pieces, which were very desirable amongst AntwerpÂ’s rich bourgeoisie. As is evident in the present example, Coques retained on a small scale the bravura and refinement so admired in van DyckÂ’s larger portraits, a skill which won Coques the nickname, ‘the little van Dyck.Â’ The coat of arms in the present work has still to be identified but is most similar to that of either the Beausart of Holland or the Beaumont de Séchelles from Champagne, France. We are grateful to Dr. Marion Lisken-Pruss, who, based on a transparency, has confirmed the attribution of this portrait to Gonzales Coques, and has provided assistance in the cataloguing of this portrait.
